I worked at Veterans Medical Center

Pros

The benefits are from the government. Huge stable organization.

Cons

Run down dark and dingy facilities with out-dated equipment. The staff seems miserable and not of the highest caliber. A lot of the Dr's seem un-caring, just going through the motions. If you don't smoke or use vulgarity on a regular basis you won't fit in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean up the facilities and make even the grounds non-smoking. Set some standards of dress and hygiene and curb the raunchy talk amoungst employees.

    I worked at Veterans Medical Center

    Pros

    Flexible schedules
    Most people are friendly
    Salary above minimum wage

    Cons

    Supervisors failed to solve staffing problems and issues in reasonable time
    Very little accountability for bad performance
    Hospital holds onto bad employees instead of letting them go
    Felt like good workers go unrecognized, but are given more work to make up for the failings of other employees
    Nepotism in hiring of some positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out who the good employees are and give them a reason to stay
    Figure out who the low performing, problematic employees are and get rid of them
    Management should take more control to solve everyday problems that linger on

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Veterans Medical Center

    Pros

    Being able to interact with veterans.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work load can become too much. Sometimes patients get mad with rules beyond anyone's control at the VA but Congress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the staff.
